Lyrics, poetry and art all meshed together

Can I curse my fingers without bleeding?
Seeking the pleasure of words to resurrect
Feed the mask I have worn for a decade
I turn to dead poets
Paddling their scripts
For a minute I see them
Emphasizing on stage
Creatures of the night
Tongues blossom graffiti
Before I am asked another poem
I study with parched dreams
Hanging in my bedroom closet
Cautiously I dip face in pastel ink
Fabrication prevails
Lifting spine of sleepless fingers
Pen and paper
Once again

Cool way to fuse your too loves, art & verse.

Stephen Bess said...

I loving the art and the poem. this first one looks like you. :)

constance said...

I love this poem!

and you know what, stephen is right. Your paintings, some of the characters, they really look like you :) Most of the time, artists/painters paint without realizing this, but it's true...somehow, there'll be similarities between artist and his/her subject...

Enjoyed your paintings but I'm really attracted to the 3rd one as it's really quite unique!

Fabrizio said...

Ehy, nice stuff.

What about your girly longings?

Writer on Board said...

Love it...

Blu Jewel said...

your art is full of such vibrancy and life. i love them.

the poem speaks a life of its own.

ps. read your poem in Essence; good show. i'm going to submit to them also. did in the past and they said they weren't taking submissions; maybe they will this time.
